We at West Bergen understand that quality of care, as measured by customer satisfaction, is the key to success in healthcare service delivery. Annually, we survey our clients and tabulate our results with the Mental Health Corporations of America (MHCA), who process our data comparatively to similar mental health agencies across the United States.
We are PROUD to announce that we received Best Practices in Overall Services and Outpatient Mental Health as a result of our 2016 survey. Check out our 2016 Customer Satisfaction Outcome Survey and see why we’re #1!
